       industry -- IT in government -- IT in society -- Key 
       findings and prospects for the future. 
520    This work sheds light on Russia's role in the global 
       Information Revolution. It examines the sources, dynamics,
       and consequences of Russia's increasing use of and 
       reliance on information and communications technologies 
       (IT) to improve the performance of its government 
       institutions, to modernize business and industry and 
       stimulate economic growth, to broaden information access 
       and sharing of ideas, and to enhance quality of life for 
       Russian people. The findings reported here are drawn from 
       a RAND Corporation research project conducted in Russia 
       from 1999 to 2005, which included interviews with more 
       than 90 individuals who are knowledgeable about IT trends.
       The author examines Russia's emerging IT sector, how 
       business and industry in Russia are seeking to use IT to 
       enhance productivity and profitability, the impact of IT 
       on government operations, and the course of the 
       Information Revolution in Russian society. A conclusion 
       that emerges is that while the Internet, cell phones, and 
       e-mail have greatly impacted the lives of many Russians, 
       an Information Revolution in Russia's government, economy,
       and society-such as many of its supporters have 
       anticipated and hoped for-remains in the future.
